If my boyfriend had testicular surgery as a child will he be able to have children?

If my boyfriend had testicular surgery as a child will he be able to have children?

Usually yes: Guys start out with 2 testicles, so if something happens to one of them, the other one alone makes enough hormones and sperm to have a family. So, the question is whether or not he has at least one good testicle. The answer is usually yes, even though nothing is 100% certain in life. Read more

Does having testicular surgery as a child affect my ability to have children?

Does having testicular surgery as a child affect my ability to have children?

Possibly: It really depends on the type of problem you had as a child and the surgery performed to correct it. If the testicle was undescended but was brought down into the scrotum promptly, Is unlikely that you have any decreased spermatogenesis in that testis. The best way to know is to submit a semen sample for analysis (sperm count) Read more

My husband has had testicular trauma in the past which wasn't too bad, but he urinated on an electric fence as a kid. Is he able to have children?

My husband has had testicular trauma in the past which wasn't too bad, but he urinated on an electric fence as a kid. Is he able to have children?

Probably: Urinating on an electric fence should not cause sterility. A man can usually father a child with only one testicle, so your husband should be ok with two. You can have his sperm evaluated to be sure, but most couple would just go for it. You can always start the work up later if you don't get pregnant in the first 18 months. Read more

Yes, possibly: Testicular microlithiasis is currently thought to be a feature of testicular dysgenesis syndrome. This carries a possible increased risk of testicular cancer and can be associated with decreased fertility. Ultrasound followup is considered appropriate as is testicular self examination. See a urologist. Read more

Please tell me, could men still have children after they have had testicular cancer?

Please tell me, could men still have children after they have had testicular cancer?

Absolutely: Losing one testis won't impact fertility except in the uncommon situation that it triggers an autoimmune response. Usually a guy will bank his sperms (as lance armstrong did) before going in for surgery that might lead to the loss of even one. Read more

Can I still have children if I have testicular cancer? I am asking because I think I may have it.

While it is possible: To have testis cancer, it is easy to find out. Go to the doctor, tell him your worry, have examine you and teach you to eamine yourself. Testis cancer is highly curable, and may not effect fertility - other testis may be fine, but this too can be checked, as sometimes there are intrinsic low sperm production. Read more

What med is comparable to actifed (pseudeofedrin) I had testicular cancer. I had a lymph node resection in the late 80's. I was told I would not be able to have children. But I had 3 children. My doctor at the time told me it was because of actifed. (

You: You should be able to use sudafed in a similar way to attempt to conceive and have another natural pregnancy. Sudafed is still available over the counter, and can be taken prior to trying to attempting pregnancy. If this is unsuccessful, you are still most likely able to have another child, but you should meet with a urologist to discuss the additional steps that could be applied to help conceive with artificial reproductive assistance, such as with ivf.

I have a testicular cyst and varicoule vein in testicles also does either one effect having children:?

I have a testicular cyst and varicoule vein in testicles also does either one effect having children:?

Varicocoele: Varicocoele in the scrotum near the testicle is a abnormal collection of veins around the testicle. It can cause increased temperature within the testicle that can hinder your sperm count / hinder sperm production. This could obviously affect your ability to have children, as it can lead to more difficulty having the adequate sperm count. Look into having it fixed by a urologist. Read more

Are testicular ultrasounds accurate?

Are testicular ultrasounds accurate?

Generally, yes.: Scrotal ultrasounds (us) are very sensitive for determining the presence of testicular masses, cysts, and relatively sensitive for detecting infection. Doppler studies done by us are very good at determining blood flow and evaluating torsion. Though us can make a diagnosis of tumor, it usually cannot reliably predict the type of cancer. The experience of the technician also makes a difference. Read more
